Brian Scheetz joined the Coker staff as the assistant men’s lacrosse coach in August of 2013.
In his first full-season as assistant coach, the 2014 Coker men’s lacrosse team broke a number of records. The team won a program record six games, four of which came in the highly competitive SAC, and broke a combined eight single-game and single-season team records. Along with the team’s success, the quintet of Andy Campos, Ryan Maurer, Tim Ryan, Mike Martiello and Shane Wilson all combined to tie or break seven single-game and single-season individual records. The Navy and Yellow’s season was highlighted by a late season two-game winning streak that helped secure the No. 4 seed in the inaugural Food Lion SAC Men’s Lacrosse Championship.
Four Cobras were tabbed as all-conference selections. Leading the way was sophomore Mike Martiello, who was named a second-team selection, while junior Dylan Marks and seniors Ryan Maurer and Andy Campos were all named honorable mentions.
Scheetz came to Coker after a stellar four-year playing career at Mercyhurst University. A three-time All-American, Scheetz received the Lt. Col. J.L. Turnbull Award as the Most Outstanding Attackman in Division II in 2012. He also served as a team captain during the 2013 season. In his time at Mercyhurst he scored 91 goals, had 141 assists and picked up 101 ground balls.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Intelligence Studies from Mercyhurst University.
